Hairy Tales Statement on Covid-19

Dear Prospective & Current Clients,

Hairy Tales is following government recommendations regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) closely. As per the list of essential workplaces in response to COVID-19, Hairy Tales can continue to do business under section #11.1.

At this time, however, I will only be servicing clients in person on an as needed basis. If I believe your training needs can be successfully accomplished remotely, this is how the session will be delivered. I will be assessing each client on a case by case basis.  The decision will be made based on the history and behavioural issues that your dog is presenting, as well as your training goals, to see whether I believe that the circumstances require an in person session.

Precautions For In Person Sessions

Please  be sure to book an appointment 2 weeks after the circumstances below if the following situations apply to you.

If you or anyone in your household has:

  • Visited a hospital or COVID-19 clinic.
  • Been in contact with someone who has become infected with COVID-19.
  • Feel that you or a person in your household might be getting ill, or have any symptoms of COVID-19.

I will waive any cancellation fees for the circumstances listed above.

Your honesty and cooperation during this time is extremely important to me, especially because I live with my partner who is immunocompromised.

To Keep You & Your Family Safe

In order to protect those whom I continue to service, I will be wearing a mask and asking to wash my hands the moment I arrive in your home – no hand shaking, dog petting or training will begin until then.

If you do not feel comfortable having me come to your home, we can easily set up a session via Zoom. Please click here for more details on web sessions.

Helping Those In Need

For those of you who have lost your jobs due to COVID-19, I feel you. I am offering 50% off all private sessions (in person or virtual) to those who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19 or who are on disability. I do ask for some proof of your situation in order to issue this discount, so please be honest when making this request.

Thank you for your cooperation in advance.
